After School Program

Academia del Pueblo is excited to announce the return of the After School program this year. The After School program provides a safe, fun after school experience for students, while contributing to academic achievement, leadership development and overall student success.

The safety, health and wellness of our staff, students and community continues to be our top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. Safety protocols that are in place during school will also be in place during all After School Program activities.  We believe in continuing opportunities to provide additional academic support for our students and allowing them to safely socialize with their friends outside of school day classroom settings.

TOP Curriculum

This evidence-based program, supported by years of strong external research, integrates three core components:

Interactive, engaging lessons from the TOP curriculum are facilitated during weekly group meetings. Lessons include content such as emotion management, problem solving, goal setting, and adolescent health and wellness. The curriculum is inclusive of youth from different backgrounds, and designed to be sensitive to trauma that participants may have experienced.
Teens have opportunities to give back to their communities and practice the skills they have learned by engaging in community service learning. These opportunities result in increased confidence, purpose, and connectedness to their communities.
Caring, responsive, and knowledgeable adult facilitators guide all group meetings and provide on-going support and coaching for students outside of those group meetings.
